Eye Conditions

Finding and treating eye diseases early may cure the disease – or slow the vision loss.

For children, the most important steps for preventing eye disease are:

  • Routine eye exams

  • Screening tests

  • Preventing eye trauma

Eye trauma means an injury to the eye. Eye trauma is an important cause of vision loss in children. As a parent, you can help your child avoid eye trauma by having him or her use safety equipment during sports and recreational activities.

Listed below are some common eye conditions in children.

Conjunctivitis

Hordeolum (Stye)
